French Powerhouse and West London outfit Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has revealed that the players did after they were criticized by their manager Maurizio Sarri.

After suffering a 2-0 loss to North London outfit Arsenal, manager Maurizio Sarri could not keep hold of himself as he blasted the players for being difficult to motivate.

Again, the Blues were faced with another 4-0 defeat against Bournemouth and the Italian manager lost it as he claimed that his players have no knowledge of his style of play which is the reason why they lost.

However, the former Leicester City powerhouse stated that his teammates have been able to respond positively to the criticism by the manager because they admitted some of the claims by the Maurizio Sarri.

According to him, the players made up their mind that they could return to winning ways and that will be reflected in their performance in subsequent games.

However, N’Golo Kante is confident that his side have been able to talk about it and he is hopeful that they can find a way around it to avoid such disappointing defeat again.

Meanwhile, the target this season for the West London outfit is to return to the Champions League next season with a top four finish.
